Its amazing how well the engine brake works in a Moxie.... just as good if not better than a road truck.... I ran a Deere and it about damn tossed you in to the windshield.
Ever had to dig for a outside shithouse
Yall are doing a very good job now I need a job
Be a lake where you got the dirt from
Do you own all this equipment or rent it?
probably buys everything on credit. Take take take never create just take.
Ozarks...Appalachian. ..flood plains of many rivers...remainders of glacial telles...hundreds of miles from sources..?
Sedimentary...runoff from early geology features...?
Some kinda NEBIRU rusty crud been dumped all over south/ eastern seaboard. ..long ago....Huh .
Arch type seam...?
Add 16 inches of clay to the bottom of the pond...an example of a porous bottom.possubly also the seam is curved or raced and can gather and send water any direction...! .
All of the different views I'm thinking you're in competition with JayPaydirt
I'm starting to think after watching your videos, you just love playing in the dirt.
Damn dude you didn't give that truck much room on the other side
What size excavator is that?
Dumper truck sounds ace :o)
ALL THAT SCRUMPTIOUS CLAY DIRT YUMMY
I would suggest having a separate audio recording device, maybe even as your main audio source with the camera audio as the backup.
Why couldn't you backfill with the clay you dug out before you hit the slate ?
Always so satisfying to watch someone operate a excavator like its second nature
When you put a soil bank up you need to dig a key trench plus you will see drainage trench’s if digging a straight into soil you mark drainage runs and dig out
Everyone knows curse words make dams stronger
What style of controls do you use? "CAT" or "JD".. looks like JD...
Very good operator in many ways!
the more digging you do on that shale the worse it will get , water will find its way eventually through shale rock , don’t think it will work, but i hope it will , best of luck with it
I wonder if that rock is some ancient structure
אתה מצוין,עובד רגוע מדויק,זריז.בהצלחה🌷🇮🇱
Rototilt would be nice😉
What a show off!!!!!! Made in USA! The VOLVO excavator is FAST!!!
Volvo is from Sweden
Nice to - finally - see a compactor on one of these jobs. You might actually be getting more than the 80-85% RC that you were getting from that next-to-worthless track walking you were doing with that skidsteer...
For such a small pond , what track pressure for depth of lift in red clay , outside of the overflo drain , is usually required ?
😴 💤 -- Man, you have got nice equipment, and you appear to be very good at operating it .... BUT .... your video production skills are sorely lacking. So boring that you put me to sleep. For example: the drive to the dirt pit, and especially the drive back with the load of dirt .... BORING. The camera was mounted on top of the cab so that we got to see the load of dirt all the way back? Seriously? Maybe it's just the TYPE of jobs you do that do not allow for more interesting content. But you should look into making your videos more captivating. Maybe some time lapse, and some editing out the repetitive stuff and just showing the peak moments, and an intro of you on the ground walking through and explaining the project, and then a closing video of the same, and maybe some good music tracks (not country though please), might liven up your videos. I have tried to watch two of your videos now, and could not make it all the way through either of them. Good luck!
How dare you talk about my grandpa
Looks like a little damage to the left cab side on the 160
Chris I think 1/2 of your subscribers must be cops or government employees who have never worked in the real world. Who gives a crap if he drove the Volvo on the street. You gotta do what you gotta do sometimes.
Letsdig18 what if the dam is really deep leeking
Test bores next ? Does the comprehensive approach make dollar sense for such a small pond unless rock is strongly suspected before hand ? For small ponds , is it best to build and adjust as you go ?
What all kind of work do you do?
Nice work got to love that rock. Where those skid marks I saw on the road 🤔😂
whats your KW? T880 with a 13 or 18 speed tranny?
You must have got a permit to drive the Volvo truck on a public road. Correct❓
You should name the 250 Judy... big booty Judy
I also have a small man made pond with my driveway across the dam. The other side of the dam is close to a 25 ft difference at the bottom. The leak comes out at the bottom. My property is mostly sand and shale. I cannot for the life of me find the leak. It looks like a small spring, and once the pond gets to a certain level, the "spring" dries up. No apparent hole, just seepage, at peak flow, around 2 gpm.
Perhaps adding bentonite to the bottom may help seal that shale ledge. Mixing a slurry of this product then adding, worth a try.
All your video's are fixing leaks on dams you've built. This is not a great advertisement for your ability.
Shane Von Harten He has hundreds of videos and two of them are fixing the same leak on one dam. Troll
Could u do a video on the equipment at the dirt pit?
Up here in Northwest NJ, the guys who put in septic systems love shale outcroppings. Send the water out and never stop. We have loads of that "Kittatinny Mountain Range" All shale, all the time. Nice work Chris.
I have the same issue in Central Jersey with the red and purple shale.... especially down by the Raitan river by New Brunswick...it's like thick blocks the size of a truck hood
kind of looks like this will turn into a "no pond for them"......
maybe the camera is getting tired of all the operator's hot air :)))) yeah, I couldn't resist.......
You should have left the camera somewhere pointed at Tim to make sure he's working when your gone
Another job well done,great stuff enjoyed that!!!!!
